Dunaway Studying Other Filmmakers' Work For Directorial Debut

Veteran Hollywood star FAYE DUNAWAY is making it her mission to attend every big film festival this year (10) - so she can pick up top tips from the "masters" as she shoots her directorial debut.
The Bonnie and Clyde actress began production on her first filmmaking project, a big screen adaptation of hit play Master Class, last year (09) after acquiring the rights to the story about opera legend Maria Callas.
But, in between breaks in shooting, Dunaway has been travelling from festival to festival all over the world to learn more about the art of directing.
Speaking at the New York Film Festival, she tells WENN, "We shot half of it and for the last year I've been going to festivals and seeing the films over and over again and really studying the techniques and learning from the masters."
The Oscar winner, 69, admits she isn't in a rush to complete her first movie because she has already waited so long to step behind the camera.
She says, "I didn't think I was ready before... I mean it just takes women longer, motherhood and stuff like that!"
